Flashcards in Photosynthesis Deck (10):
Create their own energy using light or chemical energy(chemosynthetic bacteria).
Obtain their energy from the foods they consume.
Coin shaped compartments.
A stack of Thylakoids.
The space outside the Granum.
The organelles where photosynthesis takes place.
A molecule in chloroplasts that absorb some of the energy in light. Chlorophyll does not absorb green light.
Light Dependent Reaction
Chlorophyll absorbs energy from sunlight,The energy is broken down in the thylakoids membrane. H2O molecules are broken down and O2 is released. Energy is transformed into ATP.
Light Independent Reactions
Use energy from Light dependent reactions to make sugars. Happens in the stromas of chloroplasts. CO2 is used to build larger molecules. Glucose is formed.
